CHALLENGE DAY Overview
Programs: All over the country and even some places around the world, youth and adults who have been touched by our programs or the documentaries are now joining together to form Circles of Change.
The primary purpose of Circles is to live, fund and support the philosophies of Challenge Day and the Be The Change Movement. They also support local school Be The Change Teams in creating and implementing their plans for ensuring that young people everywhere have the opportunity to create the schools and lives of their dreams. We have already seen evidence that these community circles have the ability to profoundly affect the culture and communities they serve on a long-term sustainable basis.
We envision schools everywhere creating Be the Change Teams with a focus of assessing their individual school and community needs and creating a clear and powerful plan for ensuring that one day, every child in their school and community will feel safe, loved, and celebrated.
Equipping students with new communication tools, including tools for sharing emotions and feelings and empathetic listening.
Demonstrating through the activities and share time that love, acceptance and being you at school are possible.
Providing participants with the insight that they can be a positive contribution in their community and world.
Discussing gender roles, body image, bullying and violence and the oppression that occurs in our communities and world.
Challenging teenagers and teachers to step into positive leadership roles on campus.
Teaching teenagers and adults about emotional intelligence and the effects of not sharing feelings and how that can hurt friends, family, themselves and others.
Asking teenagers to examine the costs of ?acting out? behaviors (substance abuse, violence, and bullying) that have been destructive in their lives and helping them to seek support to end those behaviors.
Helping participants to remember and ask the question, ?will my behavior/actions leave the other person (or myself) feeling safe, loved and celebrated??
